Cincinnati Children’s is a verified Level I Pediatric Trauma Center and is recognized as an expert in the evaluation and treatment of children who have experienced severe and life-threatening injuries.
Trauma is a public health problem and its management and care require a multidisciplinary team. As the leader of this team, Trauma Services provides important oversight of the care of injured children. Trauma Services at Cincinnati Children’s features several centers and programs when caring for injured children, including:
Trauma Clinic is designed to provide follow-up care to traumatically injured children. Ideally, patients being referred to the Trauma Clinic have been evaluated either in the emergency department or by their primary care physician. The clinic is staffed by nurse practitioners who specialize in the care of the injured child, and treat children injured in a variety of ways, including falls, sports and motor vehicle collisions. Your child will be evaluated to assess ongoing recovery from her injury. All concerns, including pain, wound care, suture / staple removal, return to school / activities and emotional recovery will be addressed. Based upon your child’s needs, it may be necessary to refer him to another specialty service such as sports medicine or pediatric rehabilitation to ensure his safe return to full activities.
Traumatically injured children may also require input from specialty medical services within Cincinnati Children’s such as:
The Pediatric Trauma Society (PTS), a professional organization for providers interested in improving outcomes for injured children, announced that Dr. Richard A. Falcone, Director of Trauma Services at Cincinnati Children's, has been appointed President of its Executive Board.
The PTS will be holding its second annual meeting at the Omni Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, AZ on November 5-6, 2015.
